CBS Announces Mini-Series on real NCIS cases.

Often we write about how things are really done within the NCIS. That’s because television productions are mostly created from whole cloth, just for our entertainment. Here’s a chance to learn about the real thing.

Beginning this Tuesday night, April 25th, CBS will begin a mini-series in which real NCIS cases are explored. Rocky Carroll, who plays the part of Leon Vance, Director of the TV version of NCIS will be featured in “48 Hours: NCIS”. This will be the first of a six-part series in which Carroll will narrate some real-life NCIS cases. It begins at 10:00 pm (est) on CBS and the remaining five episodes will be announced thereafter.

Mark your calendar and set your DVR’s.

Blessings, Diane and David Munson

    I am looking forward to watching a non fiction perspective of the NICS

    I had noticed the listing on the advanced CBS Schedule. At the time I didn’t know if it was a misprint or a combination of “48 Hours” and “NCIS”. It will be interesting to see what types of cases the show will highlight. I am glad to hear it will be a non-fiction “NCIS” and am looking forward to watching it.
    Will you be doing reviews of this show in addition to the TV version of “NCIS”?

      Judy’s suggestion that we write a critique of the new mini-series is interesting. Yes we will watch the show. It will be interesting to see what type of cases are featured. Many real cases are sexual assaults, so we are guessing they won’t include those. Others, include espionage, theft, and fraud. We’ll watch with interest. We suggest that as viewers watch the show, that they imagine themselves as a writer or producer of the NCIS show or a novelist. Consider how the case could be packaged into a novel or a forty minute show. Consider how much good material would have to be left out. That’s what we will be doing. We hope the show is a success. They may be looking for the next generation of shows, with which to replace the hourly shows after the present actors move on.

        In my youth. many decades ago , I read a number of books and later I saw the remake into movie format. there is commercialism and there is respect of content. I have seen both efforts. But what I found to be true is the impossibility of taking a 300-400 page book and putting all of it into a movie than will run less than two hours or right at two hours……I really appreciated those who tried…..
